At age 87, actor and director extraordinaire Clint Eastwood has more life experience than just about anyone else in Hollywood. Professionally and personally, he’s seen it all. His acting work has stood the test of time, and so too has his work behind the camera. However, just recently, the Dirty Harry star revealed for the very first time an incredibly personal and heart-breaking story about an event that happened to him over 60 years ago – one that will have you seeing him in a different light once you’ve learned the incredible circumstances surrounding it.
Few actors can lay claim to the same overwhelming success that Clint Eastwood has attained over the years. Born in San Francisco, California on May 31, 1930, the stone-faced performer was always destined for success in the acting world. He showed a style that has been emulated countless times, but never bettered.
Eastwood first made a splash in 1958 with the television Western Rawhide. Since then, he has gone on to become one of the most well-respected figures in the industry. His reputation rests on his imperious performances in movies such as The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Pale Rider and Dirty Harry.
